There aren’t many landmarks in Pulau Ketam. So, even the basic facilities like the police station and fire station are considered as local attractions.
I am pretty sure [tag]Pulau Ketam[/tag] is a safe place to have a dedicated police station serving the residents.
Bomba Sukarelawan Pulau Ketam was formed in 1972, located not far from the police station. It was a need by the residents of Pulau Ketam because a few fire incidents happened back in the 60s and 70s. Pulau Ketam’s residents form the team of volunteer fire fighters.
Pulau Ketam is a small island located off the coast of Port Klang and is accessible by ferry from Port Klang. Literally translated, Pulau Ketam means Crab Island. I was there for a one day trip after hearing some good things about the seafood on the island. Actually, driving to Port Klang was a huge mistake, it was a long journey. And we got lost on the way too. It’s more convenient to use the KTM, as the jetty to Pulau Ketam is just next to the Port Klang KTM station.
First thing we did reaching [tag]Pulau Ketam[/tag] was of course to find some [tag]seafood[/tag] to eat!
We chose Kuai Lok Hian because the other restaurants were too full. Tourists especially families and fishing groups were coming in droves that day, making full use of the public holiday.
We wanted to order crab since we were in “Crab Island”. Come to Crab Island of course must eat crabs, right? But, the price was just too expensive – RM40 per kg. Even crabs in KL don’t cost that much! So, we had to opt for other seafood like this Fried Calamari @ RM8. Nice and crispy, very well worth the price paid.
Second dish, Kam Heong Mantis Prawns @ RM12. I was really surprised at the cheap price. And you can see that the mantis prawns are quite big and meaty. Not only it’s cheap, it tasted great too!
